“Paddock’s liquid wealth declined before the shooting. Authorities analyzed Paddock’s finances and determined that he lost nearly 75 percent of his wealth in two years. In September 2015, his bank accounts totaled over $2 million, according to the report. By contrast, that amount dropped to just over $500,000 in September 2017.
More than $600,000 was paid to casinos, $170,000 was paid to credit card companies and $95,000 went to gun-related purchases, the report said.
Lombardo told reporters today that Paddock’s diminished wealth “could have been a contributing factor” in the shooting.”
